A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.
Formula 1 racing is one of the most popular sports in the world and the 2011 season is considered one of the most dramatic in history! If you aren't familiar with this category of racing, know that F1 cars are the most sophisticated race cars in the world and they are created by legendary automobile manufacturers.
Each season, teams travel to different locations around the world to compete in races. At the end of the season, awards are presented to the top driver and top team based on a point scoring system. The scoring system awards points to both drivers and teams at the conclusion of each race (the scoring is presented in the Points table). Since the races take place at different race tracks, each race has a unique number of laps. Additionally, races are constrained to a 2 hour window. This means not all races will complete the scheduled number of laps.
For this week's challenge we have provided a sample of lap data from the 2011 F1 Season covering races 4 - 17. You'll find each driver's times for every lap completed in each race. Use the Race Data to figure out who finished in the points for each race and find the top three racers across this 13 race sample.
I agree with @patrick_digan. My results match his.
I spent some time just now on this site: https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2011/drivers/JENBUT01/jenson-button.html and my race-by-race results match exactly.
